I’ve never cared for Robin, nope.. ( I am not the only one, so it’s good)
She seems to be a better at directing than acting.
But– This story couldn’t advance without her being brought back, sigh ..

At this point in time I’m more interested and excited over Valentin’s story.
Franco and Valentin stuff is what gets me pulled in.

The 2 Jason’s has worn me out and has become ehhh..
It’s has a looooooong run so I’m letting it roll for now.

Patrick
Patrick

you are not the only one – with an if and or but

I will always LOVE her character of ” ole ”

when she was dating… Patrick … during their romance and courtship. AFIRE

Our Robin.. found LOVE… married and had that child.. DREAM

since that time.. and with Jason Thompson… GONE

she lost so much steam.

it always seems to me.. Kimberly McCullough… is no longer comfortable acting.

I know she LOVES her character and GH.. that’s a life blood that will always be

the only if and or but that is

is seeing Anna … always… when she is reunited with HER Robin and granddaughter Emma… NOW we get a grandson.

I like the mushy

Hey bro. I know you hate GH without Aron at the helm, but how could this story have worn you out already?? What has happened in two months would have taken a year under Carlivati! Jason would have been stuck in the clinic for months, he would have wandered around town having cliched missed meetings for another couple months, etc. At least this story makes sense within the show’s own reality. I point to Fluke, which dragged on about 6 months too long, and the show admitted to changing the story midway through because savvy viewers guessed very early on that Fluke was actually Bill Eckert. The writing is not manipulative or going against history just for shock value. It has roped in the majority of people in town in the classic soap ripple effect way. You are VERY much in the minority of disliking the pace of this story or the story itself! To each their own, I am not saying everyone can’t have their opinion, you’re a grown man. And it’s nice to see you being somewhat positive about the show, rather ban the two solid years you spent bashing and trashing! Sit back and enjoy!

I think it’s great when actors who have moved on to other things still want to make occasional appearances. It’s realistic to me. People move away but still come home to visit. Too many times, characters move away never to be heard from again. I understand the reality of that in soaps, but it’s great when these opportunities for Kim/Robin, Bradford/Spinelli, Ingo/Jax (no more…) present itself.

I agree, AJ! You’re spot on. As the World Turns was wonderful at bringing characters back for visits under Douglas Marland’s regime. It IS realistic. I think now a days it may be cost prohibited.

Are you kidding me? I look forward to her visits no matter what! Love Robin… wish she would return permanently !

Even though she is rarely on screen, her visits are so special and so important. Essentially, she is the heart of GH. She is that anchor, that moral centre, that heroine that all soaps used to have, and need more than ever. As Robin brought Jason back to town, she is important to the story. The writers have really plotted all the beats of this story, and I am impressed at how they have picked up on story from years ago and weaving it all together so it makes sense! It has been a LONG time since gH has been must see tv for me, but it currently is! It makes me happy to say that!!

They should recast Patrick at least for one visit. with Robin…maybe its Robin who solves the two Jason mystery???

I don’t think a fake Patrick is needed for a short visit, but maybe that explains the Wes Ramsey thing?

Patrick is now Billy Abbott on Y&R and doing very well, I doubt if he would head back to GH.

I’m sure that Robin is only sticking around for the Hellidays, but hopefully she will have some input into the Jason(s) story. She of course thought she was thawing out the real Jason at the time, but he couldn’t speak, so she never got to talk to him and realize whether he acted like the Jason she remembered (aside from a brief example of him using Jason’s “skill set” when they escaped the cryogenic meat locker/clinic in NYC.)

Emma & the new baby will be with her of course, and they will make some excuse why Patrick couldn’t make it.

Patrick

I HOPE @Satan : she is here for the holidays – Anna NEEDS her family…

if and or but – she does – NOT – need Finn

hahaha…yes she does (need Finn!) I haven’t seen that flirty look in Anna’s eyes for a long time…well, okay, she always seemed to flirt with Andre and they had that dance…but, since the writers dropped that (disco) ball I think she and Finn are great together! As you probably know…

we shall see….

“Hellidays?” Oh, Satan, you have outdone yourself with that one!

Normally I would be excited and return to watch a few eps with her in it. But with her servicing the Two Jasons, two Carlys and Sonny s/l and the moral center of the show still to the extreme, I can’t think of a reason to stream the show. If it were for a Scorpio/Lavery/Devane story or something important to the core of the show, I, of course, would return. As things stand, GH is nonexistent in my world but at least I still check the headlines for a sign of a pulse from the show.

Yay Robin!!!Love GH right now my only complaint get rid of Franco he is a coward and a creep!!!

Kevin O.

I agree, but I like the actor. Kill Franco and bring him back as Todd. He can be a partner in schemes with Ava.

Jeffrie

That would be so much better I love Todd!!!!!

A coward? He risked his life to save Carly (when they were engaged; took a bullet for her. Had himself committed to a psych ward and made himself to seem crazy…and, LOL, he WASN’T crazy…but acted so to keep Nina safe while she was institutionalized. Had himself injected with drugs just to help her. He also came back to Port Charles and admitted what he’d done…knowing he’d be a target. He’s taken responsibility for everything and when others have excused his behavior as having been caused by the brain tumor …Liz, Kiki, Dr. O, Carly …when she loved him…it was Franco that doubted himself.)

I dont see him as a coward. I see him as a man with a troubled past, more troubled than we even knew since he was obviously duped and lied to just like the two Jasons…and has become the punching bag for all of Port Charles (like AJ was).

I’m rooting for the guy even though I think he’ll probably lose Liz to one of the Jasons. Predictable. And I hope I’m wrong.

Jeffrie
Jeffrie

He is a coward because he knows who the real Jason is and is not saying anything it is typical Franco may do the right thing but always to late!Really just not a fan of the character sorry to say!

rebecca1
rebecca1

Hi Jeffrie…It’s okay to disagree…but, LOL, I do. Franco is no more a coward then Elizabeth was when she kept Jake in the dark about being Jason. She did the same thing…because she was afraid of losing him. (But of course that won’t matter and that’ll be the reason she winds up losing him.) Rick Lansing did something similar when he hired Hayden to be “Jake’s” wife…so as to get him away from Elizabeth. Nicolas kept the truth from Jake…when they thought he was Jason…so he wouldn’t lose control of ELQ.

I hate when any of the characters do this…it’s beyond frustrating. And in this case Franco is going to lose everything in his attempt to hold on to everything.

Sigh…I like him. And feel bad at how it’s probably going to unfold. He’s going to come out as the creep again…and Carly and Sonny, two of the biggest hypocrites in the show will have yet another thing to blame Franco for.

I loved how Scotty went to Franco and tried to get him to change his mind. Love Scott…

rebecca1
rebecca1

correction: But of course that won’t matter and that will be the reason she (Liz) winds up LEAVING, not losing, Franco.)

Please let the real Jason be Jason(Steve Burton) he’s been on the show for years and he made Jason morgan… no one play Jason like he does..i didn’t watch GH when GH replace him for Billy Miller because I feel like no one plays Jason like steve burton so now that steve burton is back on GH I been watching it and I love his role on the show especially with Sonny and Carly Please keep him as Jason Morgan if he’s not I wont be watching GH so please let him be cold stone

Great to see Robin hit the GH canvas again. We really need to get Patrick back and Robin on a recurring. Contract. GH is on fire right now and we need to keep the momentum. Robin is key to the Jason twin reveal. Like Carly, she knows the real Jason. Kudos to GH!!! It appears a lot of the happenings is tying many people to Port Charles. With the tie to Valentine, then Julian to him and Cassandra with Ana on her trail while in possession of the Jason clue(disco ball) is a masterpiece. Not to mention throwing little deceitful Nelle in the middle is awesome. I know a lot of people hate Nelle but the young lady is an extremely talented actress. There’s a lot GH and do with her, especially is Kim Nero is her biological mother. What will make more sense is that Oscar’s dad was Drews and not Jason. If Billy Miller is Drew, which he should be, there’s a lot to explorer here. A past GH could really create crazy drama with. BM needs something to sink his teeth in bc the Jason role is not his best. Although he’s been good in the role, I’m just saying what he’s doing now is not and will not be Emmy worthy. NowSam, awesome year for Kelly Monacowho deserves an Emmy acknowledgement.

Robin comes and goes from GH like the wind changes direction. I am getting tired of any storyline that she is in. Sorry!

Having grown up on the show, Kimberly has earned the right to appear a few times a year. It would be great if some other characters did the same.

It’s nice to have non-contract characters come back for a short, believable visit. Robin has moved her with her family (which happens in real life) and comes to visit…which means we get to see the character instead of her just non-existing like some other characters that never get a mention. It’s plausible she’d come back to visit Anna just to see her mom…or when Anna was sick, or now when she hears what’s going on with Jason. Very realistic. It’s not a tease…as if they’re implying she’s back for good. She returns sporadically, like Spinelli (who I’d like to see more of). Anway, I’m for it.

I always liked Robin, well almost except when she was so stupid about good Sonny. I Also think having characters return is great. Scorpio come home. Him I miss. I like Anna with Finn. I like both of them as I refuse to watch the mob ? I don’t watch much. As for who is Jason. I don’t care. I like the one who can walk and talk at the same time. As for who is real, I FF through the mob. So who cares. ?

General Hospital’s Max Gail Opens Up On Portraying Mike’s Battle With Alzheimer’s & Making A Difference In People’s Lives

“What happens the day I wake up, and you guys are the strangers,” says Mike to his son, Sonny and his wife Carly (Laura Wright). “I left you before to my everlasting regret, but it’s going to happen. I’d do anything if I didn’t have to do it again, but it’s going to happen – one way or the other.  At least this way I could leave some good feelings, instead of disappearing before your eyes.”  Those words were said during a gut-wrenching scene on Friday’s episode of General Hospital, as Mike tries to come to terms with his deteriorating mental state in his battle with Alzheimer’s, and the hard realization that he may be better off in a care facility, instead of at his son’s home.  These scenes, as all the scenes in this storyline, have been exquisitely played by Max Gail (Mike) and Maurice Benard (Sonny).

When Max Gail arrived on the GH canvas as the recast Mike Corbin in a role made soap-famous by Ron Hale, viewers did not know what to initially expect.  What they did know was that Max is an accomplished actor with a body of work from primetime dramas and comedies, film, and the stage, and that if he is coming to GH, he must be coming on board for something major.  Before GH, suffice to say, Gail is most remembered for his role as “Wojo” on the ABC sitcom Barney Miller that aired from 1975-1982.

In story on GH, Mike, who abandoned Sonny as a child, once again re-enters his son’s life, but soon we learn that he is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and that the soap is tackling a story that is an important medical, social, and familial issue of our time.

Gail has been a revelation in this role.  A clear frontrunner for an Emmy, playing the facets, the levels, the characteristics, and the heartbreak of a person who is slowly losing everything they know near and dear to them, as in the end they are ultimately stripped of their dignity from this most horrific of diseases.

On a personal note, and as part of this conversation with Max, it was important for him and for me to share, that I lost my mother at the end of April of this year to Alzheimer’s.  So his work hits close to home, this story hits close to home, as it has also resonated for many viewers who have shared their stories on social media and when Max makes personal appearances.

Here now is this very special interview for Michael Fairman TV with an actor whom we can all agree is touching all of our lives.

You’re portraying a person suffering from Alzheimer’s and play the progression of the disease.  Do you feel pressure as an actor to get it right for those who have loved ones, or person’s afflicted with it?

Courtesy/ABC

MAX:  It’s more like an urge, or a calling to find some kind of truth in it that I can connect with.  One of the things I’m inclined towards showing is someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia often just drifts off somewhere else.  “Where am I going?”  This has happened to me many times in life.  For instance, when I was a youngster, I can remember getting in my car, and I’d driven a long way from some party or something like that, and I’d been drinking, and I didn’t remember it.  I knew I’d gotten home somehow.  So, it’s not out of my realm.  I’ve learned that there are no set behaviors really… other than that it usually ends up being really difficult for caretakers, and seemingly really painful for many, if not most people suffering with Alzheimer’s, and losing connection and losing the ability to just function.  We are kind of on the cusp of that in story at GH.  I think it was originally proposed that I would play the part for just a few months, and to give me an out if it wasn’t working.  Maybe, there was a placeholder idea to ship Mike off to a home or something, but the storyline has touched so many people that it has been continuing.

The story has been so effective.  You’ve done such an amazing job, and the fans love Mike and what you’re doing with the character, and they’re on board on this journey.  It’ll be interesting to see how far they will take this with Mike.  Will we actually see him not being able to communicate anymore?  How far will the writers go to show the horrific aspects of Alzheimer’s? 

MAX:  I’m not sure.  You know, I’ve had times where I’ve got the scene, I get the writers, and I get the heart of it.  Other times, I find where that transition is from where Mike is lucid and clear, and other times what that state of mind is and that switch is, and what that is in behaviors and energy level.  I think there’s an ongoing downturn for Mike, and for me as an actor finding something in the moment and finding how it works with things that he does remember.  They’re trying to find a place for Mike within all of the interwoven drama of General Hospital.  I, frankly, had no idea how complex the range of storylines was.  Mike doesn’t really have control over his story.  I don’t want that as an actor.  Mike has some intentions that are really important to him.  I’m trying to find that balance where there are times when he has a pathetic, very sad remorse about what he has missed.  I think that underlies his feelings for his son, who he never could quite reach, because of his own failings as a father.  Sonny’s formative experiences growing up were then with his abusive stepdad.  Finding all of that is really important to do in a way that doesn’t make Mike just this sweet older man with Alzheimer’s.   It’s a wonderful challenge to be presented with.

Courtesy/CBS

You brought up that Mike is seemingly very sweet in his demeanor now.  My mother, who I shared with you died a few months ago from Alzheimer’s was a strong-willed, feisty woman.  As the disease took hold of her, she became very sweet.   She became almost childlike.  The fire had gone out of her eyes.  You knew she didn’t know who you were, and so, all of that, as you know is so tough to witness as her son.  In terms of Mike and his ultimate care, everyone says they love him and want what is best for him, but that he needs to be taken care of because he gets confused, doesn’t know where he is sometimes. etc.  Sonny has been grappling with putting him in a care facility to be looked after, or to keep him with the Corinthos family under their roof.  However, Mike has come to a realization that he may need to be in facility all on his own, and doesn’t want to burden his son by living with him anymore.  That was a poignant moment, and another one of the best scenes has been when Mike couldn’t remember that Sonny was his own son. 

MAX:  Right and he doesn’t know if he’s around friends or around enemies.  This can be true of Alzheimer’s patients.

I had that happen with my mother when she came out to Los Angeles to see me for the last time.  She was out of her element, she was confused, and she broke down and cried in the hotel room.  She asked my father, “Why did you bring me here?” and he told her, “We came to see our son.”  It was heartbreaking.   Later, she had a moment of clarity and realized more of what was going on.  I think it’s those in-and -out moments that you portray so well on-screen.  I feel that they are very realistic to what I, and others, have experienced.

Courtesy/ABC

MAX:  I appreciate that and sharing that with me, because you never know as an actor.  That place of “Where am I?  What is this?” makes me think of that “Summer Wind” moment from the Nurses’ Ball when it wasn’t just, “I’m embarrassed.  I don’t remember the words.”  It was, “I don’t know where the f**k I am.  I thought there was a band there, but there’s not.”  So, in a way, I just had to be there on this big soundstage and just feel this big space around me.  I could barely see that there were people out there.  It’s kind of a terrifying thing to a lot of people, but I think Mike has something in him that makes him want to be okay with all of this.  He doesn’t have to freak out and get accusatory.

Courtesy/ABC

What has it been like working with Maurice Benard as your on-screen son?  Do you watch back your scenes together and ever go, “Oh, that was great!?”

MAX:  Yes, there have been a lot of those!  There are some scenes that are so emotionally focused, and we get a lot of delight in each other.  He has been playing this character in this situation for so long, so it’s just kind of in him.  Maurice has presence.  I think when I went in to read for the part of Mike, I had gone through pilot season and had gone in for some interesting pilots.  I didn’t feel like I was really connecting in the readings, because most things are by tape these days, anyway.  When this part came up, a soap hadn’t really been on my radar.  I knew I’d be going in to read with the actor, so I said, “Okay,” and I looked at the material, and then I checked out Maurice on IMDB.  One of the things that got my interest was that he has been diagnosed and takes medication to deal with bipolar disorder, and that’s become a part of his life, and it’s become part of his character.  I thought, “Wow, that’s really interesting.  This is a survivor, and he’s risen to something that takes a certain kind of balance and courage.”  I watched some clips, and when I went in for the reading of this kind of an amalgamation scene of what the story elements were going to be, I felt like we connected before we’d even started the dialogue.

Well, Maurice certainly loves working with you! He has been very supportive and vocal about that.

MAX:  It’s mutual.  We can take really little simple moments, and we can find something deeper in it, and it doesn’t have to be an, ‘I’m going to start crying now’ moment.  Although, I would love for Mike to have a moment of self-observation where he goes, “Gee.  I cry a lot more than I used to.”  I think there are people who are like that, and it’s okay for certain people to cry, and for other people it is not.

Courtesy/ABC

There was a part of my mom that knew something was wrong.  She’d go, “Why am I crying?  I don’t know why I’m crying.”  She got confused as to why she was feeling that.  She couldn’t connect it all, and at times she kept saying, “I don’t understand.  I don’t understand.”  Those were the things she would try to express.

MAX:  I have a feeling that Mike has those moments too, but he finds a way for it to be okay.  There may be a point where someone with Alzheimer’s can’t pull it off anymore, but how we find those and those specifics, I don’t know.

Working on a classic sitcom such as Barney Miller is vastly different than working on a daytime soap opera.  While now being at GH, have you found any commonality within the experience?

MAX:  If I can take a moment and reflect on Barney Miller, because it was a great experience and one that I found was not so easy to find again over the years.  One of the things that really resonates is that when we started shooting the studio audience laughed too easily.  We would end up retaking the scenes.  Sometimes, we didn’t have the end of the show written, because they tended to let certain things start to show up in the earlier parts of the script.  Danny Arnold who was the writer, creator and producer of Barney Miller would always take over the way Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) does in a way … looking to be respectful of the director, but still seeing things on his own.  Frank has a really wonderful eye.  He’s much more connected into the overall storylines, the motivations that went into the writing, and what he sees in the moment.  I always welcome him on the set because the directors, who have a range of talents and sensibilities, are tasked with coming up with a whole lot of shots to cover, a whole lot of tricky angles, and all of that.

Courtesy/ABC

Vernee Watson has been amazing as Stella, who is also Mike’s social worker.  Does Mike have romantic feelings toward Stella?

MAX:  Vernee is wonderful.  I didn’t know Vernee had been on the show when I came on board.  She won an Emmy, and I’m not surprised.   She is so present and so specific, and she’s very bright and gets what all of these elements are, and so, I think they have a connection.  For whatever ways Mike has lived in his like, there isn’t some strange, exotic draw that she is black, and Mike is white.  I like that because both my first and late wife, and my second wife, with whom I’ve had children (and we’ve been separated for awhile, but have a great relationship) are African-American.  So, in my world that is not a big deal.   I think there’s an affinity there between Mike and Stella.  You know, he’s alive.  He’s old, but he’s not dead.  There’s an ease with women he likes.  I think there are a whole lot of reasons for them to not get involved.  One is just professional, and she’s a social worker.  We just shot something where I say something to somebody else about, “back when I still had all my marbles,” you know, he’s in another stage of life, which many people go into gracefully, while many don’t.

 

What do you think about how Mike knows about who was buried at Charlie’s Pub?  He was trying to keep the truth about Charlie Delaney from coming out, which turned into a gas leak that blew up the bar!  This storyline ties in to Sonny’s mobster dealings as well.

MAX:  Well, this is where they put this effort in the storytelling to connect Mike in some way and be intertwined with Sonny.  Of course, it reveals certain things about Mike that he’s never revealed to anybody before.  So, that’s kind of cool.  I think when he knows what and how much sometimes is not clear.  That’s why I started talking about Barney Miller because the other thing was a lot of times when we go together for the table reads, they didn’t have the end of the story.  They had a first draft, maybe. Dan would talk about it, and they’d say, “Next week, the main story is going to be this man in his fifties who is coming to terms with the fact that he is gay,” or whatever those underlying themes may be with the different characters reactions.  So, we knew elements going into it and that sometimes I  didn’t know what the writers are really intending.  In terms of Mike, he’s kind of back and forth in certain moments.  I have to resist the idea that they trap me by just being careless.  I’ve learned that just trying to fix the script often gets you into a place where you “rehearse yourself out of it,” as they say.

You appeared on the morning show Good Day LA  a few months back with Laura Wright (Carly), and Maria Shriver, who has founded the Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement.  What was that like meeting Maria, and helping get the word out about the effects of this disease and the work Maria is doing?

MAX:  It was great to do.  Maria had sent out a tweet that is was wonderful what was going on, on General Hospital.  On Good Day LA, she talked about her work, particularly focusing on the fact that more women are diagnosed with Alzheimer’s than men.  So, then Laura and I sat down and did an interview alongside Maria.  We actually had a nice conversation before.  They did a web interview also as a follow-up.  That was very cool, because Maria is very smart, and I’d never met her, but it was great to see what she was doing.  Whatever we are dealing with in the show is sort of my opportunity in the real world to bring awareness and shed light on the subject.  I’d love to see an ongoing conversation online amongst people who can share their stories with each other.  That’s a lot of what they’re doing.  They’re raising money for research, but people need to be able to talk to each other when you’re a caregiver.  Coming out of the early sixties and early seventies when I was playing a cop on TV, I never was a fanatic activist.  I certainly got the behavior of the Chicago police at a certain time in terms of the energy and conflicts of the time.  There was something to think about, but at the same time, I had opportunities to kind of share that all cops aren’t bad, just look at the show, Barney Miller.

Courtesy/ABC

You were my favorite character on Barney Miller as Detective Wojciehowicz!  I think for many who watched the show you were, too!

MAX:  I think “Wojo” ended up being the heart of the show.

Max, you’re helping people through your beautiful performances including me.  Congratulations on that.   I’ll continue have to have a box of Kleenex handy as I watch how it all unfolds for Mike.

Photo: IMDB

MAX:  Well, I really appreciate your questions.  I’m just planting that seed.  That is really what I would like to do after talking to you and so many people.  That’s something I’d like to put out there.   We each have our own domains and responsibilities and all of it overlaps, and you can kind of get in touch with that; if you just go around the circle and share it, and then go around again.  I’m looking to help people out there in the world who are watching and are looking to share in the conversation.

So, what did you think about the heartbreaking scenes on Friday’s episode of GH between Mike and Sonny?  What have you thought of Max Gail’s performance throughout his GH run?  Have you experienced the loss, or are watching someone you love, or care about slip away from Alzheimer’s?  Share your thoughts via the comment below.
